The Regent - Hand carved and bound in ink to wood by Drew Meger in Salem, MA. Part of the SECRET CHIEFS sequence.

The Regent is authority, the system, the cold impersonal bureaucracy that keeps reality moving. We know it as Metatron, Greyface, the Lesser YHVH, and so on. Unlike the other Secret Chiefs who began as ambitious individuals who clutched at godhood or impersonal forces given personality through mass belief, the Regent was created. The Chiefs of the time gave up a portion of their power to create the Regent as an adjudicator of their various struggles. That small seed planted in the skull of Enoch grew over time to be an all encompassing force, for the act of giving up some of your own power, your own determination feeds into the Regent and gives it strength.

Some say the Regent’s power is accelerating, that its phantom bureaucracy of blind scribes and muttering functionaries have ascended beyond its original scope. Others say this is as it should be, that the Regent’s aim is to take control of all the functional details of rulership, leaving the pomp and the glory to others.
